    My Model 3 wasn’t ready when I went to take delivery yesterday so they gave me a Model X to take to lunch. I love my new Model 3 (black, black, pup, 19” wheels) but I want the Model X instead. Any ideas the best way to sell a Model 3 with 100 miles on it? Thanks. Kevin

    eBay, Cars.com, Only Used Teslas, etc...3's are in high demand at the moment due to low supply.

    I'd suggest posting it for sale here, M3OC and/or r/TeslaMotors

    Amazing.

    Your a man who knows what he wants and doesn't let anything get in the way!

    My only surprise is you hadn't owned a Tesla previously and would know how the car was like.

    This is one of the reasons I can't wait for the refreshed Model S.

    I imagine the OP isn't alone in people upgrading once they experience an EV for a few days.

    I love the Model 3 and it’s better than I thought it would be. It was only when I drove the Model X that I realized we could replace our family SUV as well. I have a couple neighbors interested and maybe even my son. I plan to ask, at least the starting price, what I paid minus the $7500 and go down from there. Thanks for all the tips.

    Finally, a reasonable person not trying to flip a 3 for a profit. :) Kudos.

    False Alarm- sorry but after driving the Model 3 for a week, I can't part with it. I love the car as it is and will forget the Model X for now.
    Thanks for all the tips and support. Great group here.
    Moderators- you may delete this post if you want.

    My other daily driver is a Porsche Cayenne diesel and I thought I could replace both the TM3 and Cayenne with the Model X. Then after driving the Model 3 for a few days, I just fell in love with it and decided to keep the Cayenne for long trips and when I need an SUV.
